Not every kid loves bread or, due to dietary restrictions, can have it. Specialty gluten-free and allergy-friendly breads can get expensive! Don’t worry, we got you covered, including two delicious new MOMables recipes in this post!

Mini Pumpkin Pancakes are a fun way to rock Breakfast for Lunch! The best part about pancakes is when you make one big batch, you can freeze them so they’re ready at your fingertips for breakfast on the go or in your lunch box.

Another yummy idea are our simple Apple Wraps. Tons of flavor without the bread! They’re also low in carbohydrates making them diabetic-friendly.

My daughter loves egg salad. The MOMables recipe for Greek Yogurt Egg Salad isa kid pleaser! That recipe is available when you subscribe to our free newsletter by clicking here.

Pizza is another family hit! Our gluten- and grain-free crust recipe can be made into different fun shapes with your choice of toppings.

Another grain-free favorite? Veggie Lasagna Cups. A great way to add more veggies into lunches with tons of delicious flavor.

Speaking of veggies, have you made our Spinach Artichoke Cups yet? Turn a delicious appetizer into a fun finger food for lunch.

Berry Good Wraps for Berry Good Kids! ;) Another MOMables recipe included at the bottom of this post, it’s a delicious salad wrapped in a healthy tortilla. Yum!

There’s a reason our Homemade Chicken Nugget recipe has been pinned more than 2,000 times. It’s simple and delicious! Stop buying the unhealthy bagged ones in the freezer section, and make your own for dinners or lunches.

As fall approaches, or family gatherings, break away from the typical “leftover turkey sandwich,” and try our Easy Turkey Broccoli Quiche recipe instead. A yummy lunch box treat for kids and adults!

Change up the typical burrito by adding nutritious black beans and sweet potatoes. It’s a great way to use up leftover sides from dinner, rolled into a delicious wrap for lunch!
